What I'm Wearing: Mixed Prints | Stripes & Glen Plaid!

1:45 PM

Last evening's outfit:  let's talk about the top.  Remember this dress?  Well, it's now been re-purposed as a t-shirt.  It had a lovely run this summer as a dress.  But I decided for the fall, I could get twice the mileage by making it into a striped t-shirt -- that I can wear with everything!  This goes to show that when you see a fabric you love, buy extra!
And the skirt is the ruffle pencil skirt that I made years ago.  
I haven't even thought to wear this skirt in a long, long time.  But one day, I saw MY skirt Pinterest.  And I saw it again!  I thought adding the black and white striped shirt with the black and white glen plaid would be a very subtle way to mix prints.
I guess sometimes it takes someone else showing an appreciation for what you have to remind you that it's fabulous!

  4. I love the combination of stripes and plaid with hot pink. It's a great combination and just the right amount of pink. You look gorgeous, as always.

  8. Erica, love this one too! I would love to know how you get the perfect fit with your garments. Maybe someday you could do a post on that to help those of us (me) who don't possess that talent? :) I find it extremely difficult to fit myself.

  9. thanks Angela for thinking so. I feel like I'm always struggling with fit. It seems like I fall somewhere around "too tight" or "almost right". Which is still better than ready-to-wear. I just sew, try on and nip and tuck.
